1971 DODGE CHALLENGER R/T

This 1971 JS23 R/T Challenger is a genuine factory-born FC7 Plum Crazy Purple car with a factory 4-speed, and it comes with its original build sheet. The car is a head-turner with an impressive stance, great colors, and all the desirable features that make it one of the hottest-looking Challengers from that year. It fires up with a powerful sound that matches its hot looks.

The exterior of the car is of show quality, with flawless Plum Crazy paint that features a well-laid metal flake, a polished clear coat that shines like a mirror, and no unsightly vinyl top. The white R/T stripes are bold and the body is clean, straight, and well-fitted. The side of the car has a perfect mirror reflection, and it boasts spoilers front and back, original rear window louvers, chrome sport mirrors, a pop-up gas cap, and a rear-mounted antenna. The car sits on 15-inch Rallye wheels in excellent condition. The grill, bumper, and hood trim are all in perfect condition, and the front fender’s eyebrows are in good original condition. At the rear, the bumper is re-chromed, the tail light panel is restored, and the car has original rear window louvers. The jambs, weatherstrips, and sill plates are in good shape, and the windshield is original.

The interior of the car is equally impressive, with new white upholstery and cushions in the seats that fit perfectly, and all the plastic trim, including the door and side panels, are in excellent condition. The dash pad is also in good condition, although it has some cracks near the speaker, which are not visible when seated in the car. The car has a rallye gauge cluster, an original radio, and Dynamat under the new carpet. The headliner and visors are also in excellent condition, with shoulder belts for added safety. The Pistol Grip sitting on the floor is a super cool feature, and the car fits nicely without any beat-up appearance.

The engine compartment is home to a rocking 440 engine that sounds amazing, as can be heard in the video provided. The engine is dressed up with some aluminum finned valve covers and chrome and has a giant Holley carb. The engine bay is also painted in purple and all the metal is clean and undamaged, without any signs of rust. The car has power steering and power brakes.

The trunk compartment is rock solid metal and is painted really nice, with a plaid trunk mat, new weatherstrip, and correct brackets for the spoiler.

The underside of the car is impressive as well, with media-blasted floors that look to be clean original metal, and the car has frame connectors, disc brakes at all 4 wheels with an e-brake, a Tremec 5-speed transmission, a new driveshaft, and a 3.55 posi rear. The car also features recent dual exhaust with stainless mufflers and correct square tips, new shocks, and air shocks in the back, as well as a new sway bar in front.

Everything about this R/T Challenger is exciting, from its looks and sound to its driving experience. This car is not a clone, as it is documented with a VIN and build sheet, and it is a true gem for muscle car enthusiasts.
